Be prepared! Today, I am introducing you to another series you are gonna wanna get your hands on and not put down. Broken by Annie Jocoby is emotional and enthralling. Once you start it you won’t want to put it down. I know I can’t wait for the next. For my full review keep reading after the book blurb. Have a fantastic weekend ahead!
Nick O’Hara is, for lack of a better word, a man-wh***. Look in the Urban Dictionary under that word, and his name will no doubt be mentioned. The only qualifications that he looks for in a bed-mate is that the person is hot and breathing. Mainly hot. He has no desire for an emotional connection with another person, and that’s the way he lives his life. He has his fabulous wealth and his reputation as a premiere architect, and that’s enough for him.
Until Scotty James.
Scotty is a graduate student at Columbia University in New York City. She’s broken from traumatic experiences from her years in foster care and homelessness. She has a vulnerability that is intoxicating to Nick, because, deep down, he knows that he is as broken as she.
When Nick pursues Scotty, it seems that she is the only woman who doesn’t want to be with him. At first she’s a challenge, but Nick soon finds himself falling in love for the first time in his life. With a woman who wants nothing to do with him.
Can Scotty overcome her trust issues and fear to let Nick in? Or will she prove to be too broken to trust?
Nick is known for sleeping around with multiple partners. He’s never wanted a real commitment and has never been in love. Scotty is broken from her childhood traumas. She has never been with a man and never fallen in love. When Scotty first meets Nick as her professor in an architectural class she is taking for her masters she can’t help but fall for him. Though Nick fights it he falls for the broken Scotty. Can two very different people truly love and open up to one another? Or will their walls keep them apart?
This was such a moving book. It really pulls you in emotionally. Both Nick and Scotty are incredibly complex characters. They both have their obstacles to overcome to love the way they need to. As they work through their issues they grow and develop. This truly is a roller coaster ride of emotions and feelings that will have you turning the pages faster so that you can see what happens to them. I highly enjoyed Annie Jocoby’s writing. I can’t wait for the next book and to find out what truly happens with Nick and Scotty.
